"Can't innovate anymore, my a.." - Part I

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Apple does lots of innovations on usability more than hardware itself in my opinion. Some of these go unnoticed. The industry later realizes it and adopts it. USB itself was adopted by Apple first and then only the other markets (PC, servers etc). Adoption of 3.5" floppy drives, ditching them, ditching DVD drives from laptops etc. Curiously, they were a bit slow on the DVD-R addition compared to the WinPC market may be because they were worried about the copying nonsense.

Here is another example. http://feedly.com/k/1hxI5Li

Can u suggest others ?

17" laptop
Retina laptop
Drop floppy
Drop ODD

I still think this isn't the way it should be: it only goes in one way OR the other. A headphone jack goes in anyway you want it (well, except sideways).

But yeah, they innovate. And are proud of the products they didn't release, which might as well be as big as the ones they did release. Funny, they create a product, and then kill it when it became their best selling device. iPod got replaced by iPhone, laptops are being replaced by iPads. Laptops, 3 out of 4 Macs devices. Not saying they will disappear, mind you. That happened to Netbooks, which they fortunately didn't make.

Touch ID (Fingerprint Scaneer), Air Drop, Control Center, iOS 7, True Tone

 

Mac Pro 2013, iPhone 5s Gold and iPad Air all in one year, personally i am very very very impresed

 

If another company would have made just one of those, Media Tech it would have call it oh my god that's revolutionary

 

Like Blackberry they made one phone and build a entire company foundation on one single product
